On Monday, January 23, 2017 Governor Andrew Cuomo announced a new $20 million project to create state-of-the-art skiing, lodging, dining, and year-round activities at Gore and Whiteface Mountains.

According to a press release, the investments are intended to both enhance current facilities and create new opportunities to further develop on- and off-season tourism.

Last year, one of the most iconic animals in the Adirondacks, the moose, was at the center of a trademark lawsuit between two brewing companies - Lake George's Adirondack Pub & Brewery and Canadian company Moosehead Breweries. The lawsuit was filed by Moosehead Breweries, and now, the battle over the use of the moose has been brought to a Syracuse court!

The Saratoga & North Creek Railway (SNCRR) - a passenger train that operates between Saratoga Springs and North Creek - is providing guests with a unique opportunity for an excellent dining experience coupled with beautiful views.

Over in the Town of Warrensburg lies one of the first districts listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Known as the Warrenburg Mills Historic District, it encompasses the buildings and sites from the Woolen Mill Bridge to the Osborne Bridge. Within this district, there is one building in particular that has quite a storied history - The Birdhouse. What was once a simple granary is now the headquarters of the Lotus Group of Companies, which operates eight diverse businesses in Upstate New York.
